Intelligence in the Knowledge Society 2016 Edition


On October 13 – 14, 2016, ”Mihai Viteazul” National Intelligence Academy organized the 22th edition of the international conference ”Intelligence in the Knowledge Society”. The event continued the culture set within the Academy to answer to an urgent need for knowledge on circumstances generating changes in modern society and influencing the international security dynamics. The conference panels addressed topics relevant for academia, experts, security, and intelligence practitioners. Presentations focused on various innovative methods of training in intelligence and creating new cooperation models at European level, as well as on potential efficient solutions to deliver information on risks between decisions makers and civil society, capitalizing the knowledge generated by the convergence of emerging technologies, security and intelligence.


This year’s edition proposed an innovative format, hosting both topic-oriented discussions within panels, as well as debate sessions and expert talk presentations, giving young researchers and PhD students in security and intelligence related fields the opportunity to present current researches, and even their own vision upon the security dynamics within a poster presentation.

The conference gathered more than 150 participants from Romania and other countries, prestigious international academia, but also experts and practitioners in intelligence and security studies. It offered the opportunity to debate and question the key hot topics on national, regional, and global security strategy.
